NBA Rumors: Kevin Love Demanding More Ball Touches From Cavaliers, ‘They Just Have To Trust It’

Darius Garland #10 and Kevin Love #0 of the Cleveland Cavaliers on the court against the Orlando Magic in the 3rd quarter at Amway Center on October 23, 2019 in Orlando, Florida.

Despite suffering a huge disappointment last season, the Cleveland Cavaliers still refused to trade All-Star power forward Kevin Love and undergo a full-scale rebuild. As of now, the Cavaliers view Love as the player who will lead them back to title contention in the post-LeBron James era. As the face of the franchise, Love is expected to be the focal point of the Cavaliers’ offense.

However, according to Sam Amico of Sports Illustrated, that doesn’t seem to be the case in the Cavaliers’ first game in the 2019-20 NBA season, where they suffered a 94-85 defeat at the hands of the Orlando Magic. Though he finished with a game-high 18 rebounds, Kevin Love only scored 11 points and just took 10 shots. Love is well-aware of how many touches he got against the Magic, and he’s hoping that those things will change in their upcoming game against the Indiana Pacers on Saturday night at Quicken Loans Arena.
